Will Joseph Cook returns with new single "4AM"

18 January 2022, 10:51 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Will Joseph Cook has kicked off a new era with fresh single "4AM".

"4AM" is Cook's first outing of 2022, following his November 2021 release "No Time To Be Alone", and is accompanied by a Bertie Gilbert-directed video.

Cook says of his new release, "Conceptually "4AM" is this really overly poetic voicemail for someone you love. A rush of emotions you want to share but there’s no one up to hear them. I had initially written the verse as an acapella and then at home one night I built up the big instrumental chorus. It wasn’t until I was actually recording some new music in Mexico that the track fully came to life. I was literally wide awake at 4am sending voice notes and those feelings gave me the rest of the song. I recorded so many sounds of the city from my apartment window that night - they’re all buried under the instruments."

He's yet to follow up his 2020 album Something To Feel Good About.

Will Joseph Cook's "4AM" single is out now. He'll play London's Lafayette on 27 March. Visit for tickets.
